PXC-37: Featherweight Title Contenders Sidelined Due to Injuries


Earlier today, Pacific X-treme Combat (PXC), announced that the match between top PXC Featherweight Contenders, Yusuke Yachi and Mark Striegl, is cancelled due to injuries. Yusuke Yachi is the current Shooto Champion at 145 pounds in Japan, while Mark Striegl is arguably the best MMA fighter in the Philippines today, undefeated with 12 wins, and on a mission for the PXC Featherweight Belt this year!

“It is very unfortunate that 1/2 of the much-anticipated Featherweight match beween Yachi and Striegl is postponed. While training, both Yachi and Striegl recently reported minor injuries that will not allow them to compete on May 18. These injuries are definitely unexpected but it happens in this game. We wish both men speedy recoveries. We will continue to move forward and give PXC fans great matchups,” said E.J. Calvo, PXC CEO and Promoter.

Calvo further exclaimed, “We are confident that PXC-37 will not dissapoint. The fight card is full of high-level MMA bouts! PXC-37 will showcase a huge battle for the Bantamweight Belt featuring the best young fighters at that weight from the Philippines and Japan. We have MMA stars from Hawaii, Guam, Singapore, South Korea, and the Philippines ready to go!”
